Women Legislators of the Maryland General Assembly, Inc.

President's Message

Delegate Susan K. McComas

I am honored and humbled to be selected by my colleagues to serve as President of the first Women’s State Legislative Caucus in the United States. I had the privilege of serving four years on the Judiciary Committee with one of the founders of the Maryland Women’s Caucus, the late Pauline Menes. I hope to be a bridge linking the past of the caucus to its future. We have a wealth of talent, creativity, and commitment in our caucus and our members are ready, able, and willing to work in a collaborative and bi-partisan way for the women of Maryland.

The Women’s Caucus was formed in 1972. Currently 59 women and four men are members. The Caucus supports legislative initiatives to improve women’s and children’s health care, economic policies, and combat human trafficking and domestic violence among other pertinent issues affecting women in Maryland. The Caucus meets with the Governor, the President of the Senate and the speaker of the House to promote legislative initiatives and budget priorities. We continue to work to ensure equity for women in Maryland

We encourage you to participate with us in the legislative process by contacting the General Assembly’s website or by calling 410-841-5400. Our Executive Director, Marsha Wise, is available to furnish information regarding our agenda and policy positions - 410-841-3013 or 301-858-3013.

                                       Sincerely,

                                       Susan K. McComas
